A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange, aroma smacks of grapefruit and lime zest, with a slight hint of caramel. Flavour is more grapefruit, citrus pith, soft light mouthfeel and a long drying pithy bitter finish. Quality brew. Would be excellent on cask I bet

mgajdaczewa (303) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 31, 2014
W aromacie przeważają wyraźne, trawiaste nuty od chmielu, jest świeżo i orzeźwiająco. W smaku czuć mocną goryczkę o lekko pestkowym charakterze i długim finiszu z lekkim winogronowym posmakiem, brak obecności treści słodowej (całkowicie przytłumiona przez goryczkę), co nie kłóci się z dobrą pijalnością i gładkością piwa (największy jego atut). Fajne.

caesar (4716) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Almost clear yellow color, short head. Aroma is a bit grassy and flowery hop, some grainy malt. Probably not the freshest example and it clearly has hurt the beer. Bit watery in taste, some bitterness. Bit watery stuff for now. Probably was a lot better from bottle and even better than that from cask.

Clear blond appearance. Aroma of pale malts and a touch of soap. Very fresh but light tasting. The balance is good. Light carbonation but quite a creamy feel.

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle at the March 2014 De Molen monthly tasting. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is lime citrus. The flavour is light sweet, very light bitter with a light, watery malt hop citrus palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Smelled great but the enjoyment rapid faded.

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
bottle from saveur-biere. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Aroma of roses and tropcial fruit. Light-bodies, shy malty base yet it transports the intensive aromatic hope very well.

Flaske 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Drukket hjemme 9 Apr 13. Lys gylden. Uklar. Høyt luftig skum som varer lenge. Mye lacing. Pent! Herlig ferskenaroma. Smaken det samme med tillegg av ulike frukter. Blir litt tørr etter hvert. Innholdsrik. Litt bunnfall. Verdensrekord i smak/% ?
